Do all of them. It will help you a lot. But definitely do NBMEs 13, 15, and 16 online weeks before your actual exam to help you know where you stand. The scores you get on these practice tests will closely predict your actual exam scores.

Good luck

It actually depends on how confident you are. If you're confident then do the tests 2-3 weeks before your actual exam, if you want to be on the safe side, try doing it around 5 weeks before your actual exam, just in case you want to change the test date without paying the late fees or extend eligibility period.

Good luck
